About Me:
My name is Patricia Neely-Dorsey. I am from Tupelo, MS.
I have just recently published a book of poetry entitled "Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia: a Life in Poems.
It is a true "celebration of the south and things southern".
There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. I want to show a flip side of the coin. There is much to love about this much maligned and misunderstood part of our country.
Using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life. I would like for you to get to KNOW Mississippi in a different light and I would like to introduce you. I invite you to "Meet Mississippi Through Poetry Prose and The Written Word"

I am a graduate of Boston University in Boston Massachusetts with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I moved back to my hometown in August 2007, after living for almost 20 yrs in Memphis, TN working in the mental health field.I am now working even harder to promote my book and get it out to the world. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I have been married to James Dorsey for 15 yrs and we have a 9 yr old son, Henry . My book is available at Reed's Gumtree Bookstore and The Village Green Bookstore in Tupelo, MS .

"A CELEBRATION OF THE SOUTH AND THINGS SOUTHERN"

BOOK AVAILABLE:www.reeds.ms/books.asp
$15

Some poetry selections from Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems:
SOUTHERN LIFE
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,
Come close and walk with me;
I'll tell you all the simple things,
That you are sure to see.
You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,
Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees,
Caterpillars on the step,
Wooden porches cleanly swept;
Watermelons on the vine,
Strong majestic Georgia pines;
Rocking chairs and front yard swings,
Junebugs flying on a string;
Turnip greens and hot cornbread,
Coleslaw and barbecue;
Fried okra, fried corn, fried green tomatoes,
Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that's syrupy sweet
And cool green grass beneth your feet;
Catfish nipping in the lake,
And fresh young boys on the make.
You'll see all these things
And much, much more,
In a way of life that I adore.
Copyright 2008 Patricia Neely-Dorsey

SOUTHERN MAN
There's nothing like a Southern man,
He's a man that you should know;
He's one to whom you'll find no equal,
Anywhere you go.
He has a sweet, molasses talk
And a slow, smooth gliding walk.
He has strong firm hands that let you know,
Real work is nothing new;
He has no problem with the fact,
That he should provide for you.
There are certain kinds of values
This man is sure to hold
His love of home and family
Is sure to not grow cold.
He'll deeply love his mother
It's a bond that's always there
All throughout his life this man
Will show her tender care.
He's one that you can count on,
To do the manly things;
He'll change the tire and check the oil,
And fix the backyard swing.
But underneath a tough exterior,
A gentle soul lies too;
He's one who'll rock the baby,
And even cook a meal for you,
On Sundays he'll sit beside you singing
On the same church pew
There's nothing like a Southern man,
He's a rare and special kind;
If you look forever, anywhere,
He's the best you'll ever find.
Copyright 2008 Patricia Neely-Dorsey

LET'S
Let's go for a ride in the countryside,
And make lots of stops along the way;
Let's soak in all the warm sunshine,
And create a perfect dasy.
Let's stop at someone's roadside stand,
And maybe buy some fruit;
Let's pretend it's some great find,
Just like a pirate's loot.
Let'sgo inside a country store,
And have some bologna cut;
Let's sit outside and eat our fare,
Like some treasure from King Tut.
Let's always enjoy life's simple things,
And to their full extent;
Let's always spend these kinds of times,
And make it our intent.

SHADES OF LOVELY(Good Enough to Eat)
Women of color are a sight to behold,
It's amazing to see their delicious colors unfold.
Honey,
Spice,
Brown Sugar,
Brown Rice,
Nutmeg, Cinnamon,
Gingerbread and
Toast,
These are just a few of the colors,
That black women boast.
There's Pecan, Almond, Walnut and Coconut Creme;
There are more shades than any could dream.
If chocolate's your weakness, they have every hue,
White chocolate, Dark chocolate
and Milk chocolate, too.
They come in Caramel and they come in Toffee,
They even come like you like your coffee.
There's coffee with cream and coffee balck,
Of any variety, there's certainly no lack.
There's Espresso and Mocha and Cafe au lait
Too many colors to count in a day.
From Banana to Licorice,
Including Hot Fudge
If prizes were given,
Who could possibly judge?
When you see women of color
In all their array;
There's nothing more lovely,
You'd just have to say.
Copyright 2008 Patricia Neely-Dorsey

WAXING POETIC
My man told me that I have talent
And that I needed to share it with the world;
I just laughed and went on my way.
I don't do nothing but write down some words.
Don't nobody want to read that stuff.
He said,
You do.
